His wife knows nothing about how to take care of him.

mszoe1, How awesome is that, that your brother with these health issues has found someone to love and take care of him? Unless she's an awful person and/or you fear for his life, I'd say take your cue and have a life of your own for a change. This is a GOOD thing right? ♥

I tend to agree with Pam. Is the new wife such a nitwit that she can't learn to care for your brother? Does she and brother expect you to continue serving them as some sort of servant? Is caring for you brother the only thing in your life, you don't want to give it up? I don't mean to be critical, there's nothing wrong if you choose that path I just wondered if there may be a way out of the caregiver role if you choose to.

What "rights" are you concerned about? Were you getting paid? Room and board? It would help us to know what you will be losing with his new wife stepping in.

mszoe1, unless your brother met his new bride 24 hours ago, his wife probably already knows what to do. I think you have been his caregiver for so long that you are now over protective of him, and no one would know what to do to help him except you.

Your profile says your brother has a heart condition/stroke, what are his limitations? Are there other medical issues?

Rights? You are living with him, I assume. This is your golden opportunity to leave and have a life of your own!! Go and don't look back!!!

So, offer to teach her. Obviously, if he needs a caregiver, she is familiar with his disability or illness, and if he's well enough to get married, then he can help her learn.

More information would be helpful, such as what kind of caregiving does he require? Is he elderly? Is his new wife a golddigger? Did they date for very long before the marriage? Was the courtship and marriage a surprise to you, that you couldn't get her to help you out and learn beforehand? Is she expecting you to continue with all the work while she reaps the benefits of marriage?

Personally, I would think that you would be happy that he's happy and that there's someone to share the caregiving duties with. But maybe it isn't that simple.
